The ears of women and men have been decorated with jewelry for thousands of years, usually by piercing or tearing or stretching the earlobe. Up until recent years, torn earlobes, though a common problem, have been vastly overlooked and underappreciated in the world of cosmetic surgery. With Dr. Brenner’s torn earlobe repair, patients can once again enjoy the comfort and beauty of an impeccable ear.
Overview of torn earlobe repair
An earlobe can become torn or stretched from heavy jewelry, an accidental laceration or a number of other reasons. Sometimes an earring can get tugged through the earlobe, thereby tearing it. Maybe one decided to get a higher gauge hole and would like to return the earlobe to its original form.
Simply put, torn earlobe repair becomes necessary when the torn earlobe causes discomfort, pain or is simply a blemish that one wants to repair.
